Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

This wine certainly impressed me this evening. Fourteen years old, still youthful on the nose and palate. Great fine grain tannin. — 8 months ago

Amazing. Rich and luscious. Loosing a little power but gaining finesse. Love it — 10 months ago

Knights Valley Cabernet Franc 2007

Without question the best cabernet franc I’ve ever had from California, this is unfortunately the last bottle I have. I don’t know what happened in 2007, but Gerhard made a spectacular cab franc that has no parallel before or since (of course, the winery no longer exists - at least not in any recognizable form - but you get my meaning). Still drinking incredibly well, this was a singular achievement from what always was a WAY underrated winery. — a month ago

Spring Mountain District Petite Sirah 2008

From Gerhard Reisacher’s now defunct Delectus winery (actually, the winery might still be active, but he’s long gone and has his own excellent eponymous label out of Knight’s Valley), this is drinking quite well! — 5 months ago

Boulder Falls Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Tasted right after finishing the 2009 Bear Crossing. This was also excellent and drinking well. An interesting comparison between the two. While the Bear Crossing had more depth, this one had greater breadth to the palate. Could be that this is ultimately a slightly better wine than the Bear Crossing and that it will gain some more weight in the next couple of years. Doesn’t much matter to me, though, since these were the only bottles of these two wines that I had in the cellar. Both excellent wines, though. Enjoy! — 9 months ago

Cuvee Julia Knights Valley Red Blend 2013

Stunner. This beauty started big and seemed to get bigger as the night progress. This boutique winery makes some head turning wine. And Cuvee Julia is the flagship bottle. — 3 months ago
